Product Description

Review

"Written by a couple who run a successful combination art gallery and art school for children, this book presents the authors’ most popular art projects for youngsters, covering an ambitious range of materials and techniques. This guide offers a greater-than-average number of open-ended and inventive projects that can be taught to younger children and teens alike. Each project is paired with an example of a work by a modern master or living artist. Many photographs illustrate techniques and show children deeply engaged in creativity. VERDICT: Recommended particularly for teachers and parents." - Library Journal

"I love Susan's Art Lab series and reference them in the Art Studio often. They're easy to follow, full of images, and directed at open-ended exploration - exactly the kind of reference I need for my own busy home." - Meghan Burch, Art Studio Educator, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

Format: Paperback
Any book that breaks down lessons in such a straightforward, clearly-illustrated manner while still striving for such high-end concepts as "Painting Like a Fauvist" is a hit with me. I would have *killed* to have a book like this when I was a kid, something that demystified a fine art culture that seemed completely out of reach at the time. Well, it isn't anymore, and that's because of books like this.

I love to see my grandkids read books. There is something so special to see the book in their hands and see their eyes following the sentences and words. I especially like books that give information. Creative Art was perfect for my 10.year old grandaughter. It gave her the chance to see several creative projects that she could do on her own, filling her time with delight. It also showed what materials were required for each project. She had to read and apply the ideas that were provided to her....a guess that is a valuable life skill.

I bought this book for myself. After reading it from cover to cover, I sent it to my grand-daughter.Loved the fact that she'll be able to go on line and get aquainted with the different artists and their works.
She phoned me to tell me how enchanted she was about the book. Even the cover she found inspiring.
